Any Smith K-frame. My only one currently is a 10-5 built in 1966, with a pinned, four-inch tapered barrel. It's my head-of-the-bed gun; but yes, I have to fondle it now and then.
The nicest one I ever had was a 15-8 dated 1970 that I bought immaculate and unfired ten years ago. A first-rate smith gave it the finest trigger I've ever experienced on any handgun, at least equal to any Python I've handled.
I gave it to my son so he wouldn't have to wait till I croak. He and his three boys love shooting it. But I miss that beauty.
